DIE EMPTY

One of the most beautiful article that I have read in the book called "Die Empty" by Todd Henry.
 

 

The author was inspired and got this idea of writing ​​this book while attending a business meeting when the director asked the audience: "Where is the richest land in the world ?"
 
One of the audience answered: "Oil-rich Gulf states." 
 
Another added: "Diamond mines in Africa."
 
Then the director said: "No. It is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed from it, 'they have died' and they carry many valuable ideas that did not come out of the light and benefited others. It is all in the cemetery where they were buried."
 
Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his wonderful book "Die empty" where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.
 
The most beautiful of what he said in his book is that: "Do not go to your grave and you carry inside you the best that you have, always choose to die empty."
 
Die empty is a new expression and unique on its own way. At first glance you will think it is normal.
 
But I was surprised to know the true meaning of this new expression. 
 
It is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it before you leave this world.
 
If you have an idea perform it.
 
If you have a knowledge give it out.
 
If you have a goal achieve it.
 
Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

 

Do not keep the goodness inside of you, and die full of ideas and be a delicious meal for the earthworms in the grave.
 
Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we will always have tomorrow. But sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out. 
 
Are you empty?
 
I think we all weigh thousands of tons of goodness, creativity, love and hope that we can give. 
 
We have not given all of it, except a little.
 
How I wish that we start the race to give and remove every atom of goodness inside us. We should learn how to find and sustain our passion and creativity, even in tough times.
